Food and service are first class. The modified American plan is a good value at the high end. Breakfast is either buffet or a la carte. The dinner menu choices are limited but cover all food groups and change nightly.

The Gasparilla Inn is a really charming old Florida Inn that has been restored to its early grandeur. It is gorgeous without being stuffy, very Florida-like in decor without being kitchie. The service in the main dining room is impeccable, the drinks are delicious and the food is outstanding. What more needs to be said?

For dinner, our red snapper special was greasy and overdone like a hard hash brown paddy. What a pity to trash such a nice piece of fish. The Gasparilla Inn is beautifully restored and well worth the visit, but as far as the food goes, you might want to stick to breakfast or cocktails.

While staying on Gasparilla Island we decided to finish a wonderful mini-vacation with brunch at the Gasparilla Inn. It was indeed a spectacular way to end the trip and left us wanting to go back and do it again. The food, service and ambiance were all 5 stars.

The setting is reminiscent of an earlier era, but it’s just a little too perfect and too immaculate with a slightly artificial feel to it.The chairs at the window tables are large and plush but the backs are reclined, so sitting back made me feel like I was being swallowed up, making it awkward to eat. The menu is comforting... More

The Main Dining Room at the Gasparilla Inn is Old Florida at its finest!. The Inn is always beautiful and was especially so with Christmas decorations. We were treated like royalty! Everyone was gracious and accommodating. The food was outstanding. The Black Grouper was delicious. The service was excellent and attentive. It was a wonderful dining experience!
